About Pallets Direct

As a company we are simple folk, we have clear goals and targets with a small but efficient team of just under 20 operatives we aim to run a tight ship that allows you to build relationship with everyone involved in our growing company. Here are just a few of the key contacts we have at Pallets Direct, showing that we are just a human as all of you.

Alexander Tyrrell
Director
Portsmouth

Alex is the second generation of waste management, his father Graham was the founder of J&G Metals Group (now J&G Environmental).

Having attended Kingston University and working within every industry available, he went full circle and straight back to his roots, eventually evolving from metal waste to the recycling of Wooden Pallets. 

Alex is a fan of motorsport and often tries his luck on the Forklifts, with a worrying lack of ability. His time in the company is mostly spent in the office where it is consider safer for personnel.

Alex enjoys building relations with other people in the Industry often attending functions and conferences on behalf of the Company, as well as occasionally exhibiting.
